Registration desk is a block away. Entrance is frightening with questionable characters loitering. Lobby is dark and forboding and hasn’t been updated in decades. The elevators do not work. The stairs are dirty and smelly. The hall ways are dirty and smell of urine and marijuana. The room was old but it appears to be clean. We could smell a natural gas leak so we cancelled and went to another hotel.

No piscina no gym y apesta el pasillo averiguen las condiciones de ese hotel para que no pierdan cliente y ha cucarachas que te visitan si tú darles permiso

This is not a resort !!! Hidden fees.. parking and resort fee . it was like staying in a motel. 1 of 3 elevators were working. The stairs were dirty and smelt like urine. A terrible way to spend your vacation.

Hotel room i stayed for 1 night, was Ocean view, relatively clean, no noise in hallway in wee hours of a night. Hotel will match price you find online (same hotel)

It was horrific because the smell and the service bad and other the room duty hot worst hotel I been

This hotel takes alot if work to check in..I have stayed here many times and it keeps getting worse..I will not go back... The rooms are moldy, some rooms have no air conditioning, the resort fee is $10. But the swimming pool and jacuzzi are both closed down with no date for reopening but they still charge the resort fee period. The parking fee has increased from $18 a night to $24 a night period. The front desk has moved and it is a lot of work to go check in get your baggage and go check into your room do yourself a favor do not stay at this place.

The hotels television did not work for the first night. The room was dirty and very old. The toilet would not flush maintenance came twice for the toilet. The front desk was rude and she hung up in my face after my third complaint. The fan in the restroom made an awful sound. I would never ever suggest this hotel

The property is in a defunct mall with only a handful of shops open. The rooms were poorly maintained, floors dirty, and in general need of updating/repair. The cable had been ripped out of the TV in my room and was just left lying on the floor, and the internet never stayed connected for more than 10 min at a time. The AC was a loud window unit and I found myself looking under the beds to make sure nothing would crawl out in the middle of the night. Overall a poor nights sleep and not a place I would recommend.

Poor service from the front desk to the cleaning. Fire alarms going off until 10:30 at night to boot

Noisy and a little bit dirty . Very close to the beach and entertainment

Would never stay here again! Entrance smelled like cigarettes and the rooms smelled like bug spray/ bathroom had cracked wall, chipped paint in the tub, shower head dirty/ when I opened the top of the coffee pot there was a filter left in It and a bug crawled out/ stain on the quilt/ broken blinds and closet door/ noisy portable air conditioners/stinky towels/ only 1 of 2 elevators was working very slow. The pool water was warmer than the hot tub. The front desk did try to accommodate my request to switch rooms - we saw a total of 6 rooms which were all gross! Too late in the evening to switch hotels we ended up settling for a room just to sleep in, we were out of there before 10am. They credited my card $10 resort fee, I feel they should have refunded the total or at least half of the room cost for the inconvenience and wasting my time switching rooms.

My daughter and I had a great stay at this hotel. We were very pleased with our room. This will be where we stay every year for our vacation. Thank you to the friendly staff. Special thanks to Gibel for her fenominal people skills.

Everything was dirty but the smell the roon super dirty The people hotel they don't know what to doing

Checked in on Wednesday and don't get maid service till Saturday and we checked out Sunday...hotel needs upgrades and cleanliness done. Pool supposed to be heated and it wasn't. From what other people told us it the heater broke days before we got their and it was gonna take few more days to fix it. Water was ice cold . This hotel needs new mamanagemet that can turn this around . Will not stay here again. Best thing was Francis the driver who can take you anywhere you want cheap. Very nice guy definitly will call him onour next trip to Florida! Call Francis for ride to and from airport he's the best! He works for himself not just the hotels around the area

Everything, except for the air conditioning going out mid-stay, was absolutely fantastic!

when i first walked in the hotel, there was a stinch and also carpet was dirty in the hall area. the room was nice and clean and smelled nice. the staff couldnt provide good answers to my questions.when booking the hotel i was advised it would be 150 deposit. then when i got there an additional 100 was placed on my card as a hold. i was provided with room 436 that was already occupied. i eventually got into room 722. the shuttle driver joe was awesome. he was very nice and made me feel welcomed. the other staff was mediocre.

It was a horrible expirience at this hotel my room didn't even have ac

We had a wonderful stay. The location is a perfect 10. The staff was friendly. The bed was comfortable. The pool is excellent! It's old (thus the name historic) so there is a mildew smell. We bought a scented candle. Problem solved. The a/c works great. It was 90 degrees everyday. Tv was good. The only problem is the old musty smell and the dated bathroom. If they replaced the carpet in the halls, that would be a huge plus. But there's 24 hour security there. I always felt safe. Pretty good place overall.

The room was great and very spacious. It even had a kitchenette! We enjoyed everything except the lobby/downstairs area. That was the only disappointing thing, as it was a bit run down and barren.

We stay here several times a year because it is the cheapest, most tolerable oceanfront hotel with a pool in South FL. It is "historic" so it is a very old building, but SG Resorts is trying to fix it up. Our bed collapsed. We had to hold it up with a suitcase. The first day, the maid came to clean our room at 6pm! I asked everyday for wash cloths, and EVERYDAY THEY SAID THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY!!! There were NO BUGS. The exterminators came while we were there. The room had a full size fridge, microwave, and oven burners, but no actual oven. At 9AM, some serious construction began in the room next to us - INTENSE HAMMERING AND DRILLING and lasted all day. Valet is $25/day and $40/day on holidays. The garage is $18/day. Make sure to prepay so you can go in and out. While our room did not smell like cigarettes, the hallway did...most likely because of permanent residents there. They recently got a fitness room and a business room. The gym equipment is very outdated, obviously passed down from another gym, but the room is large with quite a few cardio and weight machines. Checkout is at 11am, but they let us stay 'till noon at no extra charge. They said we were free to use the pool if we wanted and could shower in the fitness room. If you leave something in the room, regardless of the value, you have to tell them the exact day you were there and the exact room. After two months, the maid who found it gets to keep it. They don't have a simple "Lost and Found".
